Fender flares

I currently have an 87 K5 Blazer and am looking for some fender flares for it. The bushwackers are a bit too big and guady IMO, I'm looking for someting kinda like the stock IFS trucks came with... stick out an inch or so... reall smooth and subtle. Anyone got ideas of who to try? What's everyone running on the older body style rigs? Feel free to post pics...thanks

Re: Fender flares

Bushwacker makes the "OEM style" fender flares, which are pretty much exactly what come on the IFS from the factory, not sure if they make the OEM style's for an '87 K5, i'll check into it...

All i'm seeing is '88 models and up, might try Xenon flares....

Re: Fender flares

I'd second (third?) the vote for Xenon. Their stuff is made of urethane, not plastic like everyone else's, so it bends and conforms, not breaks and cracks.
